About the Author

Christina R. Butler is a professor at the American College of the Building Arts, an adjunct professor at the College of Charleston, and owner of Butler Preservation L.C., which specializes in historic property research. She is the author of Ansonborough: From Birth to Rebirth and several National Register listings. Butler has a B.A. in historic preservation and an M.A. in history from the College of Charleston/Citadel joint program.


A new and compelling perspective on the history of Charleston. Synthesizing primary documents, maps, and property records, Butler painstakingly chronicles 340 years of Charleston's physical transformation through filling and drainage projects. More broadly, this book offers a much-needed historical framework for understanding the flooding issues currently facing Charleston and other coastal cities."—Jon Bernard Marcoux, Clemson University

"Christina Butler describes a growing but low-lying city where the ground surface was constantly in flux. The filling and draining that characterized Charleston from its earliest days had both short-term and long-range consequences for the livability of the peninsula, and for the archaeological record of these processes. Some may surprise you."—Martha Zierden, Charleston Museum

"Lowcountry at High Tide is a much-needed study of landmaking in Charleston that also includes the related topics of drainage and filling existing land. Using public records, Christina Butler has traced Charlestonian's efforts to create raised, dry--and healthy, attractive, economically viable--land from their original low, inlet-laced peninsula."—Nancy Seasholes, author of Gaining Ground: A History of Landmaking in Boston
